Galena's Voyage to the Pacific
and Beyond

This voyage is still underway. I departed Key West, Florida, on 15 December 2010 with the intention of sailing around the world. I've always held that one can't really say that he's circumnavigating until he's at least halfway around. But having completed the longest leg (4100-nm) I feel authorized to make the claim.

During this voyage I am using Facebook as a primary forum for log updates and photos. You may see all my pictures and postings there (http://www.facebook.com/bill.shaw/notes). As time and internet connectivity permit I'll be consolidating and moving those Facebook postings to this, my main web page.

So far I've sailed from Key West, Florida, through the Panama Canal, across the Pacific Ocean to Fiji.
